The E.G.G Walkathon is a charity walkathon organized by the Shanghai United Foundation. Participants cover a distance of 50 km by foot within 12 hours, and canvas for donation in all kinds of creative ways through their personal network, accomplishing a personal challenge in both charitable fundraising as well as physical achievement. Through physical exertion, participants take action for charity and also appeal to more people to contribute to the healthy growth of children of ages 0-18 years, and promote more equitable development. Now in its ninth year, the event kicked off at Shanghai Disneyland, finishing at the HBC 1862 Shipyard by the riverside at Binjing Avenue, passing Kangqiao, Zhangjiang, Jinqiao, and other checkpoints along its 50km course.

As of the end of May 11, Cango’s team raised more than RMB 24,000 for the E.G.G Walkathon.
